About Me

My philosophy to patient care is to try and avoid the need for surgery unless there is no other option.  When surgery is indicated my approach is to always do the procedure that will provide the greatest benefit with the least invasiveness.  Putting the patient first and giving the patient options if foremost in my paradigm.

What People Say About Dr. Eric Sincoff, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am a very happy and thankful patient of Dr Sincoff. I don't understand why anyone would say otherwise. I had surgery with him and am pain free. He thoroughly explained everything. A reviewer, Angel Schumacher, stated that Dr Sincoff saw her father and was rude and disrespectful to her?? Who is the patient - why would she write a review for her father? Then, she states that Dr Sincoff is the only doctor who would see her father. Apparently, Dr Sincoff is the only one who even cared enough to see her dad while other doctors couldn't be bothered. I did read that Angel gave a "one-star review" for her ob/gyn. Sounds like she is just not happy, period. Anyway, I can't say enough about how happy I am with Dr Sincoff.

Dr Sincoff is wonderful. He is funny and smart and great with kids. If you need a brain man, he’s your guy. The only problem is, he doesn’t take HIP.

My experience with Dr Sincoff was great. He helped my arm pain and I am doing spectacular after his surgery. To the person who stated Dr Sincoff got his degree from a cereal box, the correct grammar is “his” degree not “he’s” degree. Obviously the person who wrote this nasty comment is not very bright. This person also did not leave their name or any specifics of what they were unhappy about. Probably a drug seeker. Anyway I was very happy with my eperience being treated by Dr Sincoff.

To the person who is blaming Dr Sincoff’s office due to their insurance not authorizing their injection, I had the exact opposite experience. Dr Sincoff’s office went above and beyond getting my crummy insurance to authorize my procedure. Honestly, your whole story makes little sense. Why would a doctor recommend a procedure and then put in the record that you don’t need it? You are blaming the office for your own bad insurance coverage. Your mean comment should be directed at your carrier

Received a follow up call from Angel, Office Mgr., asking me to change my last review to a positive review. No way. I was denied coverage for lower back injection by Florida Blue because his report showed and he stated I have no back pain. WHAT! I have a Herniatred Disc. Was on pain killers in my visit. Told him I haven't slept well in over 2 1/2 month. Constant pain and uncomfortable in any move I make. I had pain bending or twisting. He smiled a lot and then asked if I had any questions.

Maybe a good doctor but their office practices are questionable. They say they accept insurance but do not openly disclose or explain that they expect you to pay anything your insurance rejects and that this could easily exceed $1000. Getting your patients to sign what is effectively a blank check is morally wrong. A 15 minute consultation and the bill was for over $2000.

Came in with knee pain & Dr. Sincoff was able to diagnose the problem was in my back. He recommended a cortisone injection. It was done in his office & I have not had any pain since. Dr. Sincoff has been a Godsend. The office associates are friendly and professional . Could not be happier with the practice.

Dr Sincoff has made a tremendous improvement in the quality of my life. I had a disk fusion (L4-L5) performed by another physician (a DO) in 2013 with no noticeable post surgical improvement. I continued to experience low back pain and was unable to stand without support. In 2016 I found Dr Sincoff -who performed a lamicomy L1-L4 in April 2017. I felt immediate relief after the surgery and am back to normal activity after two months (playing 18 holes of golf twice a week).
